" 'There is an obsessive quality to the collaborative works of Stephen Aldrich and Walton Mendelson. The rhythms, repetitions and patterns of imagery may remind one of certain outsider art or even the work of the clinically insane. The difference, as Salvador Dali would say, between their work and the work of a madman is that they are not mad. Likewise, one may discern an affinity with Surrealism in the duo's juxtapositioning of dissimilar or incongruous material. However, like their longtime associate and mentor, Frederick Sommer, Aldrich and Mendelson do not attempt to reveal the inner workings of the subconscious, or to jar one's sense of reality through the 'fortuitous meeting on a dissecting table of a sewing machine and an umbrella.' Rather, their multilayered collages come from...their interest in the workings of the universe, and from their recognition of the connectedness of all things."-Craig Krull Read Publisher's Description.
